    So Vote Already

    Yep it's all over but for the voting. Tomorrow the voting stations open and probably by Wednesday morning most of us will have a good idea of who's going to be the chief executive of the United States in 2013.

    Well I say that by Wednesday morning, but if the New York Times statistician, Nate Silvers, is correct then Obama will easily be re-elected and we will probably know it by late tomorrow night. But if the polling returns really are as tight as the Rasmussen and Gallup companies claim then we may not know until Monday of next week who's going to be president . . . and if they really are that tight then Romney will probably eke out a marginal win. I suspect that Nate Silvers is wildly wrong but I don't know that for certain, and I will simply wait for one or the other of the candidates to concede defeat. The other fellow then will be the winner. Simple, yes?

    I will end this on a humorous note [well, it's humorous if you are a Republican]. No doubt I am wrong about this but I like to fancy that national and overseas bookies are basing their odds [heavily favoring Obama by the way] on Nate Silvers' analysis which always outrageously favors a Barack Obama re-election. So then big -- and I mean really, really big -- gambling money is at stake in this election and those people will not be amused if Romney wins and this costs them several large fortunes as a result.

    Ahem! Are you listening to this Nate? Here's the deal then; if Romney does win then my advice to you is, "Run Nate! Run for hills fellow! Faster Nate! Run much faster!"

    Heh . . . well one can fantasize.

    Who are you voting for?
    The time for just talk is done. Active recruiting of friends, relatives, co-workers and congregations is now critical. Be the Indy Voter making the difference. 7,501 groups formed. 3.5 million FB. Take back your schools, communities and country.http://www.freedomworks.org/

    Yet social and economic alchemists on the progressive left press on, arrogantly believing they, despite overwhelming historical and real time evidence to the contrary..can turn collectivist lead into utopian gold - Webrockk

    The wife and I early voted last week. We voted for Romney [or she says that she did -- heh] and yet since we live in Texas our contributions only go to the national vote tally. Half of Texas could have skipped voting and the remaining voters would probably have been enough to give Romney the electoral college tally.

    The question is when will we know?

    Based on the polls, the predictions of recounts upon recounts, and likely court challenges, I wonder if we'll know before Christmas, let alone Thanksgiving.

    I am here to take all you libs to the polls on 7 November. I understand that most of you are too stupid to figure out how to get a picture ID. Don't worry, I got your back. Get out the vote....

    Back when I was working I felt the system was weighted against people who worked. The room next to my office was a polling station but I couldn't vote there. I had to vote out near my home. I tried to be there when the polls open but if there were too many waiting I'd have to catch it on the way home. They closed the line at the proper time but those in line got to vote even if it took an hour.

    People who don't work don't have those problems. Since I live in Mexico I voted on Sept. 25th.
